Themes

Fact and Myth

It might be hard enough to understand life, when there are so many “facts” and opposite “myths” that confuse our perception to the world as we already know. Every day, scientists learn more about life and does not only bust myths, but also facts that are not actually true. Through this timeless and universal duality, we present in this theme some myths and facts, and explore together the real science behind them; we wish you a pleasant and useful reading!


Oceans and Marine Life

Water covers more than 70% of our planet, hiding most of its secrets in the depths of its mighty oceans. In addition to the splendidly diverse forms of life they host and the valuable resources they provide, oceans are key players in regulating climate. Studying oceanography also provides insights that help us understand and predict alarming natural events such as earthquakes and tsunamis. Therefore, understanding and preserving oceans is essential to achieve sustainability and maintain life on Planet Earth.


Woman and Child

Women and children are receiving increased global attention due to their vulnerable situations in many parts around the world. Many international, regional, and local entities focus their efforts to maintain the well-being of women and children and offer them fair opportunities. Under this theme, we introduce articles that tackle topics relevant to women and children’s health, motherhood and childhood, parenting tips, and other relevant areas of interest.


Science Story Time!

Every keen reader knows that reading is indeed a life-changing habit. Helping little children gain interest in reading is the best gift you can offer them; it is a gift that stays with them forever, fueling their minds with a passion for knowledge. On the other hand, in today’s world, international efforts are put to awaken the children’s interest in science at early stages, to encourage more of them to pursue their future careers in scientific fields. That said, who does not like bedtime stories? We offer you a diverse set of interesting stories, developed to spark little fellows’ curiosity about science, and above all, help you enjoy quality family time.

Science and Art

There is an eternal and a magical bond between the two realms “Science and Art” that seemingly look at opposite ends of the human activity spectrum.


Science and Sports

The connection between science and sports should not be surprising; after all, all physical activities are connected to science because they are basically conducted by the human body. Yet, the connection between sports and science is not restricted to biology; it expands to physics, psychology, chemistry, among other fields of science.


Science Everywhere

“Science Everywhere” is not just a saying; it is a fact. There is absolutely nothing in life that is not connected to science. In this theme, we opt to spotlight this reality from every possible angle. We tackle the science from the perspective of everyday places and activities we live, study, work, and experience without giving much thought to the myriad of sciences lurking in every corner, vessel, piece of furniture or equipment, etc.
